This should be interesting to see unfold.  We'll see who wields more power in the court of public opinion, females or transgender.  I think the only solution will be to create a third non-gender/neutral category for those who want to compete in it.  It's been unfair and will continue to be unfair for boys to compete against girls.  I also find the term cisgender stupid.  

 

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — The families of three female high school runners filed a federal lawsuit Wednesday seeking to block transgender athletes in Connecticut from participating in girls sports.

Selina Soule, a senior at Glastonbury High School, Chelsea Mitchell, a senior at Canton High School and Alanna Smith, a sophomore at Danbury High School are represented by the conservative nonprofit organization Alliance Defending Freedom. They argue that allowing athletes with male anatomy to compete has deprived them of track titles and scholarship opportunities.

“Mentally and physically, we know the outcome before the race even starts," said Smith, who is the daughter of former Major League pitcher Lee Smith. “That biological unfairness doesn't go away because of what someone believes about gender identity. All girls deserve the chance to compete on a level playing field.”

The lawsuit was filed against the Connecticut Association of Schools-Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference and the boards of education in Bloomfield, Cromwell, Glastonbury, Canton and Danbury.


“Forcing girls to be spectators in their own sports is completely at odds with Title IX, a federal law designed to create equal opportunities for women in education and athletics,” attorney Christiana Holcomb said. "Connecticut’s policy violates that law and reverses nearly 50 years of advances for women.”

The Connecticut Association of Schools-Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference says its policy follows a state anti-discrimination law that says students must be treated in school by the gender with which they identify and the group believes the policy is “appropriate under both state and federal law.”

The lawsuit follows a Title IX complaint filed last June by the girls' families and the Alliance Defending Freedom with the U.S. Education Department's Office for Civil Rights, which is investigating the policy.

The lawsuit centers on two transgender sprinters, Terry Miller and Andraya Yearwood, who have frequently outperformed their cisgender competitors.

The two seniors have combined to win 15 girls state indoor or outdoor championship races since 2017, according to the lawsuit.

The three plaintiffs have competed directly against them, almost always losing to Miller and usually behind Yearwood. Mitchell finished third in the 2019 state championship in the girls 55-meter indoor track competition behind Miller and Yearwood.

“Our dream is not to come in second or third place, but to win fair and square,” Mitchell said. “All we're asking for is a fair chance.”

The only solution is much simpler..............

 

Girls sports:

 

- You are a girl.

- You've always been a girl.

- You're not a male transitioning to girl.

- You're not a girl transitioning to male.

- No surgeries, no hormones, no treatments, no nothing.

 

Anything other than 100% "is and always was a girl" competes in male sports.

 

- Male, transitioning, transitioned, whatever, everyone else competes in boys sports, and let the games begin.

 

PS - Same exact rule for bathrooms too.  Yeah, it's that ****ing simple.

That's a common sense solution Joey.  Unfortunately, that ain't going to happen.  Create a third category for all the catch-all phrases that are created and let them go at it.  It also could benefit girls that want to compete against boys and have a legitimate shot of beating them.

Who the **** pays for that?  What about the costs and time involved in additional events?

 

You instantly make any track meet up to 1/3 longer, and we're already pressed for time to finish before dark, and facing budget issues when paying officials.

 

However, it's not about that.  It's about take your mentally ****ed up psyche, go play with the boys, and just be glad you're not living in Iraq, and getting thrown off a roof to your death for being so ****ed up.

Go read some of the comments on social media about this, the amount of people who think this depriving the tranny's of their human rights and that they should be able to compete against girls is astonishing.

Girls are going to lose this one and it should be real interesting.  More boys are going to become girls to compete than girls becoming boys.  This is millennial steroids.

A third class is ridiculous, and they won't stand for that either.

The tranny class, c'mon, it would be a self proclaimed freak show.

 

Joey's right, real girls play with the girls, anyone else plays with the boys or stays home.

Other legal option that may be considered is to get rid of groups altogether and just let everyone compete against each other

so there aren't 74 genders, only 1.

 

ironically.

Trans gender games. Trans gender Olympics. They want to be different they get a different game. Let them organize it.
